Firefighting Today Weekly Roundtable – What are the best traits or skills for the firefighter on the fireground?

Join us Sunday Evening September 7, 2014 at 8:00 PM Eastern time and watch us live and interact with the panel.

The panel has talked about what it takes to be a good firefighter, but now the question is, what is one of the most desirable skill sets for the firefighter to have operationally on the fireground.
Watch us live here at the event page, or watch us live on youtube to comment and interact with the panel.

Firefighting Today Weekly Roundtable – What can we learn from the television Emergency?

Many firefighters either watched the original television series or have watched the show in reruns. I thought it would be fun if we took all of the positive things we can find from a 30 year old television show, and whether or not it applies to our modern fire service. This will be a lighthearted discussion with some serious messages that might be current even today.

Firefighting Today Weekly Roundtable – Hazardous Materials

This week the panel will discuss Haz Mat responses, what to do to interface with a team that is responding, ad talk about a couple of case histories where simple responses turned into a haz mat scenario.
You don’t have to be a member of a haz mat team to participate. We are looking to get the average fire department perspective on this.
Or you can watch us live on the events page and comment.
Watch us live on Youtube and leave comments to interact with the panel.

Firefighting Today Weekly Roundtable – How Do You Decide?

We are bombarded with information in all facets of our life, but certainly within the fire service. We learn about new tools, equipment, innovations and ideas.
How do you personally make decisions on what is good or bad, and further how does your department make decisions on the “new stuff” that circulates in your organization.
Where do you get your information?
The panel will brainstorm and see if we can generate some thoughts on this subject.

Firefighting Today Weekly Roundtable – Same Fire, Different Solutions

The panel will be looking at a group of simulations and determining actions based upon their department circumstances, manpower and resources. The idea will be to discuss how different departments handle the same set of conditions, different ways.
